Rumoured Leicester target Almeyda could leave Mexico - Chivas CEO

Alejandro Moreno weighs in on the future of Leicester City after Craig Shakespeare was sacked just four months into the job.

Chivas CEO Jose Luis Higuera admits that there is a "risk" that manager Matias Almeyda could leave the club, amid interest from Premier League side Leicester City.

The Mirror first reported the Foxes' interest in Almeyda on Monday, but the 43-year-old has also been linked with vacant managerial posts at San Lorenzo in his homeland, as well the Chile national team.

Despite the interest, Chivas currently remain confident that Almeyda is happy at the club.

"Matias Almeyda loves our project, is committed to us, we have the same drive and pressure and I don't see that Matias Almeyda is thinking about anything else," Higuera said on ESPN's Futbol Picante.

But when pressed on the Leicester rumor, Higuera couldn't guarantee that Almeyda would stay.

Matias Almeyda was appointed head coach of Chivas in 2015.

"There is the risk that Matias Almeyda gets up and decides to go, even though he has a contract," Higuera admitted.

Almeyda's contract runs until 2020 and stipulates that the former River Plate manager can leave Chivas for either the Mexican national team job or Argentina, according to Higuera.

The Argentine led Chivas, who only field Mexican players, to a famous title win in the 2017 Clausura, but the team has slipped during a difficult Apertura tournament and is currently in 15th place in the Liga MX table, out of playoffs reckoning.
